Fox's Bolling Suspended While Being Investigated For Harassment

Eric Bolling Suspended From Fox News Pending Investigation ResultsMore

A vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, Bolling wrote a March op-ed accusing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, and establishment Republicans of betraying the president with their version of a plan to overhaul the nation's health system.

Pat Robertson - longtime televangelist who founded the Christian Broadcasting Network and former presidential candidate - weighed in Monday night on the recent allegations of sexual harassment levied against Fox News Network's Eric Bolling. "Thank you I look forward to clearing my name asap". Eric Bolling has been suspended by the network as investigation is still ongoing about whether or not he sent lewd photographs to three female colleagues via text messages in years past.

A host on USA cable network Fox News has been suspended during an investigation into allegations that he texted unsolicited lewd images to women co-workers, the company said.

Another day, another round of allegations of sexual misconduct by an employee of the Fox News Network.

Heldman also suggested in her Facebook post that the lawyers investigating the sexual harassment claims leveled against Bolling should speak to the makeup artists at Fox News.

The Specialists was created in May after Fox News was forced to revise its lineup to fill the void left by O'Reilly's ouster.

The female colleagues who received the message say the illicit communications occurred several years ago. Most recently, Bolling was the co-host of "The Fox News Specialists" weekdays at 5 p.m. and the host of "Cashin' In" on Saturdays at 11:30 a.m.

An attorney for Bolling, Michael Bowe, denied the allegations.

The following day, spokesperson from Fox News confirmed via NBC News that his suspension is "pending the results of an investigation, which is now underway". "This on-air behavior was perfectly acceptable to Fox executives at the time".

"Once, he took me up to his office in NY", she continued, "showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex".

During the internal probe into the scandal, former event planner with the company, Laurie Luhn told investigators that she was harassed by Ailes over the course of 20 years and Fox News was aware of it. Luhn said she was "psychologically tortured".

Fox Business host Charles Payne is also now under suspension pending an investigation he sexually harassed a female political analyst who was a frequent guest on the network.
